gas prices recovered under bush as opposed to obama. there are so many examples. don't forget the fact over a four-year period, president obama's job creation total when you takes on the job lost and gained was a anytime of 2 -- net of 25,000. every five days, roughly that many people come into the workforce. in four years he created enough jobs to fill a week's worth of new job applicants in the united states. president bush had better job numbers. not great but were better job numbers and we remember in 2003 and 2004 we heard talk about the jobless bush recovery. the media of course will give obama a free pass on the economy but they didn't cover the obama economy with near the kind of voracity. >> when it comes to this stuff, if you're going to be aggressive on one, be aggressive on all. like we raised from the coverage of jesse jackson junior. if you go after republicans for inproprieties go with equal zeal covering democrats in theirs. on the economy stuff, we are led to believe that we are in the middle of a gang busters's recovery when even to date we're net jobs down in this ad
, appreciate it. >>> house speaker john boehner saying this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his jobs council, but the washington examiner's byron york said it wasn't worth saving at all. byron coming from high home town of san francisco, hope that makes you a 9ers fan temporarily. >> i am through sunday. >> what's the deal with the jobs council. why is it no big deal that the president got rid of it? >> it was always a big nothing. there's no doubt about it. president obama has often been under criticism throughout his time in office for putting other issues before jobs and the exee, and in his first term it was obama care or cap and trade. now you hear about gun control and immigration, and creating a jobs council was a way to show that he was actively involved and compared approximat about t. >> do you think speaker boehner is wrong for coming out and criticizing the president for getting rid of the jobs council? is that a wrong move by the speaker of the house? >> i think he's correct. this never accomplished anything. he found this version of the, the president did. it met a
and they said there's a very unique equation here. sequester equals bad. obama coined the sequester. that's what they say. i talked to democrats and they say we need four more days to shut off the sequester. the interesting thing is that everybody is locked in. there is no bill that's moving in the house of representatives. republicans say we passed two bills last year. there are a couple of bills in the senate moving later this week. republican plan, democratic plan, which would curb the sequester and give agencies the agility to time the cuts out so they don't hit at once and give them discretion in the way they make cuts. but the bottom line is this is not a hair on fire moment on capitol hill. we have been through these drills meantimes on government shutdowns and the debt ceiling and fiscal cliff. it's not a running down the hallway, blackberries exploding. it's an interesting dynamic. >> now the republican leaders who are going to respond to the pr pressure against them over the last week by the president. >> good afternoon, everyone. four days, we have four days until the president's sequ
republicans have the fort attitude to let it take place. it was president obama's bright idea in 2011 when he failed to get any negotiation with republicans over the debt ceiling. he said guys, i have an idea, it's called sequester. $1.2 trillion over 10 years. you know what republicans said in we don't like that you want half the cuts to come from defense. no, we're going to do it. now the president doesn't want it because he's not interested in cutting. >> they both signed on to the agreement. i called it a backup backbone. but i agree with you on this, the cuts are not cuts, they're shaving off the growth of varies programs in the future so nothing is outright cut. in a $3.5 trillion budget, $82 billion is a joke. having said that, it's better than nothing. it's better than just letting this pass by. >> right. you know why it's better? the american people have said that the debt in our debt deficit is their biggest worry. pew research did a study and guess where the deficit and debt was with american people. number one. american people know what's good for the country but the president doe
